On one of the best nights a person can have- sunset to sunrise and all the stars in between. I love my life, and my friends.


"And if these mountains had eyes, they would wake to find two strangers in their fences, standing in admiration as a breathing red pours its tinge upon earth’s shore.  These mountains, which have seen untold sunrises, long to thunder praise but stand reverent, silent so that man’s weak praise should be given God’s attention.

It is a wonder that those exposed to such beauty forfeit the great questions in the face of this miraculous evidence.  I think again about this small period of grace and thank God for it, that if only for a season, I could feel the why of life, see it in the metaphor of light, in the endlessness of the cosmos, in the miracle of friendship. 

And had these mountains the ability to reason, perhaps they would contemplate the beauty of humanity, and praise God for the miracle that each of us is, pondering the majesty of God and the wonder of man in one bewildering context.

Their brows are rumpled even now, and their arms are stretched toward heaven.”

Through Painted Desserts, Donald Miller

I love nights like these.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
  what is man that you are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?

These are a few of the faces of those whom I have had the privilege meeting while in Africa over the last few years. As I met them, I was also met with joy and pain, hope and despair, and always with a deep sense of connection. There isn’t much out there better realizing that we are all neighbours.

Thank you for sharing moments, meals, smiles, and the little pieces of your life with me.

If I stop for one moment, really stop; if I close my eyes and forget all of my distractions, all expectations, and everything that holds me back…
I picture my feet on a thousand landscapes, my knees covered in the mud of a thousand different hues. My hips carrying the weight of my every belonging, my hands embrace a thousand unique hands. My smile reflected in the eyes of a thousand siblings. Their souls and mine sharing brief eternities. My footsteps echo like heartbeats off of a thousand mountains. The mist of a thousand waterfalls bead on my palms, tracing along the valleys of my fingerprints. I lose myself in the embers of a thousand dying fires mirroring a thousand dying stars.  Every moment, remembering why I am here.

I will endlessly seek you, for I want to no longer live, but you to live in me. May I be your resting place. This free gift of you I cannot keep. I will share it as I share my every breath.

Watch your tumblrin’ backs. I got hacked. Hide your kids.

Happy New Year to all,

It is indeed a “happy” and blessed new year for those of us involved with the Christian Life Orphanage in Mwanza, Tanzania and we have YOU to thank! During our recent “See Amid” concerts, the Rosedale Valley Strings and the Central Alberta Homeschool Choir received over…

dismantling a heart

I hold up the past three weeks with a scrutinizing stare. There isn’t a single moment where I can see something going wrong. Not a specific event where something happened to make me feel what I’m feeling.


It turns out I’m the safest, most protected place. Realizing that you are safe and protected is a very beautiful thing when you are facing the largest inner storm in your life. God waits for the perfect time and place to draw out the poison that pools deep within your heart.


I am dismantled. I do not know how I lived before. The closer these wretched things come to the surface, the more evident they become.

I want to run and hide. Hide from the process, from the immense weight, from the love. This I cannot do, for I was bought with a price.

As hard as the process is, I know that God is good. All that He does is for our good.

This takes more courage than I have. Seeking Truth takes courage, especially the truth about yourself. But we cannot hide in the lies. We cannot place our value for comfort higher than our value for truth.

"If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair."

C.S. Lewis.

I will stand with my arms outstretched in the middle of this arena. Watch me as I bleed. I need you to see this. This is me becoming me. You seeing this makes it real. You seeing this makes it truth. I turn on every light and open every door. Watch this old man crawl to the front porch and die.


I invite you to do the same. This beautiful death is an invitation to new beginnings.

It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Furthermore, we had [e]earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of [f]spirits, and live? 10 For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. 11 All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

12 Therefore, [g]strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed.
